Planning a baltic cruise with Constellation in July 2006 (4 families). Need a few questions answered.
1. Two families have children aged 4,8,and 10. Is this cruise appropriate for this age group.
Two families have teens 13,15,13,15 are the ages. Would they be OK...
2. Tours to St Petersberg. What woul b ea good reccommend for a group of 15 people.
3. tours to Berlin. do you have any suggestions
4. Are there any shore excursions from celebrity that would be reccommended on this cruise.
hope to hear from fellow cruisers
This seems like a pretty involved itinerary for young children, but if you already have booked it, I am sure everyone will have a great time. Celebrity like all lines has a kids program as well as teen age activities. As for the tours, I can't help you much there. NMNita
On the '' standard '' 7 day cruises in popular markets, Alaska and Carribean, Celebrity has a good children program, perhaps not to the level of its parent, RCCL ( which has superb children programs), but as good as Princess , NCL and HAL, imo.
On the more exotic, specialized, or refined longer itineraries, the emphasis is sharply reduced;; there are indeed much less family-type bookings on those, due to their very nature, thus much less requirements for children programs. As Crusingchick mentionned earlier, those itineraries are really not for ''non-adult''....And I would presume this holds true for all lines, not only Celebrity.

I took two of my grandchildren on an Alaskan cruise on the Summit a few summers ago and they loved it so much they got where they didn't want to get off the ship when we arrived in the ports. The reason you hardly see the kids is they do have great programs for them and they aren't bothering the adults. The baltics is rather expensive to take little kids if they prefer to stay onboard.
